Rush Limbaugh has won Author of the Year in the Children’s Choice Book Awards for his latest kids book Rush Revere and The Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.
Kids could vote for their favorite author, illustrator and book of the year online between March 25th and May 12th. Limbaugh beat Jeff Kinney, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth and Rachel Renee Russell, who were also finalists in the category.
The ceremony took place on Wednesday night in New York. Limbaugh blogged about his experience at the ceremony on his website. “I have to tell you, there were so many immigrants that came up to me before the event started, when everybody was being seated and during the event, and they were telling me what coming to America meant to them,” he wrote. “One of them was the photographer, one of the official photographers for the event. There were a lot of people that were working the event that came up and wanted me to understand how much America had meant to them, and it was really great.”
